sometime last month I had "OTMA" across the top of my back... it was in washable marker! I don't like needles and I don't like pain... so real tattoos are out! One would've probably could have thought it was real! The O was in red for rose, T yellow for Jasmine, M blue for lilacs, and A was purple for Violets... yes after their favorite perfumes!

I'm afraid of the needle, too. ;-) That's the reason why I haven't got a tatoo yet. But I really like the idea of having a NAOTMAA tatoo, so that I have no choice but to overcome my anxiety. ;-)

I've built a stone monument in my back yard, and considered his names for many things.

I think there is actually a thread for all stone monuments that have been made somewhere on the forums. It might be something of interest to you.

Well, I'm not really one for hero worship or following any other human being, since they're absolutely no better than me and make just as many mistakes as I do. You simply cannot say any of the children never complained about their situations in life. That would just be ignorant. Alexei did complaind about his illness.

But I do know that each of the Romanovs were highly interesting individuals who have had a HUGE impact on my life for almost a decade now. I have no doubt in my mind that I would not be in college majoring in Russian right now if I had never heard of them and I know I would never have met all of the close friends I've met if I hadn't.

I worked extremely hard for the chance to study in Russia, simply to see the places they lived and to pay my respects where their remains are now.

Well, in fact we are NOT all alike. They are persons who are better than we are, and persons who are worse than we are. It doesn't matter if they are Royalty or not. There are Royal people surely better than me for their human qualities, and Toyal people who are worse than me...Commoners who are better than me and commoners who are worse. And I respect deeply people who are better than me. If they gave me some good example of life, I don't feel less free to try to follow them in what they have well done. I admire lot of people and I would be proud and haughty if I wouldn't accept that there's people whpo deserves to be admired. I've done nothing to be admired. At least not yet!  :P

You know you all have really good points, and have all thought of something that works for you. Take some people a really long time to figure those thing out.

 I figured that this topic was a good one to make my first post! Alexei was the first Romanov I was interested in and through learning about this little Tsarevich I became a huge fan of Russian history. In honour of this brave and inspiring little boy my fiancee and I named our son Alexei:

My son is nicknamed Alexei. His birth name is Alexander Joseph, after my father and my fiancées father. I picked the nickname Alexei, because i first heard about the Romanov's when I was in 7th grade, looked up more info about them and have been interested in them ever since. :)
